The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès on the promenade de la Croisette is world famous for the prestigious Cannes Film Festival held here.
The old palace of festivals was built in 1949. It replaced the circle building. The first festivals were held in it, but after some time when the film festival began to gain popularity it was decided to build a new palace.

In 1979, on the site of the old municipal casino on the promenade de la Croisette, an absolutely new, huge building appeared, where now grandiose events such as Eurovision and, of course, the famous Cannes Festival are held.
